“Ginger Beer” from Caldera Brewing Company (Ashland)

If you don’t like ginger, you’ll probably skip this one—but a message for you ginger-haters: first, you’re dumb for not liking ginger since it’s one of the most versatile and delicious substances around, and second, while this beer is certainly “gingery” it’s not overwhelmingly so. I tasted a beer called Orange Blossom once. Imagine Miller laced with artificial orange extract—this vile beverage is in my bottom three worst beers of all time. But Caldera’s Ginger Beer tastes of fresh ginger, with crisp, refreshing maltiness, like an Asian lager with its nice foamy head. The ginger, like it or not, provides a distinct and pleasant aroma and an unusual, lip-puckering flavor that goes well with a variety of cuisine. I enjoyed it.

Grade: 8.5/10
